West Ham are reported to be keen on signing Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin, report The Sun.
The 21-year-old is valued at a moderately priced £18 million - but this is not the first time he has been linked with the Premier League.
Nice won the race for his signature and he proved an eye-catching addition, playing alongside Mario Balotelli.
He scored five goals and provided eight assists this past season and at just 21, he is a bright prospect.
West Ham would be smart to bring him in, but should Tottenham re-ignite their interest too?
It is clearly time for Spurs to give up on Georges-Kevin N'Koudou, a Ligue 1 winger who did not work out as a success.
Tottenham could have reservations on Saint-Maximin on this basis, but it would be wrong to disregard all players from one league just because of the failings of another.
Saint-Maximin is an dazzling dribbler, capable of scoring spectacular solo goals, as he did in the Europa League qualifiers against Ajax last season for Nice.
He is a player Tottenham need, one who can stretch defences and create space for the likes of Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane to exploit.
Having shown initial interest last summer, Spurs could regret standing by and watching him become a success at West Ham.
